1 July Keti Koti !!!!

You guys must be thinking what kind of title is this . 1 July 1863 Keti Koti (Sranantongo: “the chain is cut” or “the chain is broken”)is an annual celebration on July 1 which marks Emancipation Day in Suriname. The day is also known as Maspasi or Prisiri Maspasi, meaning “Emancipation” or “Emancipation Festival”.

Keti Koti marks when slavery was abolished in Suriname and the Dutch Antilles in 1863. However, enslaved people in Suriname would not be fully free until 1873, after a mandatory 10 year transition period during which time they were required to work on the plantations for minimal pay and without state sanctioned torture. After 1873 many slaves left the plantations where they had suffered for several generations, in favor of the city of Paramaribo.parbostatuary_kwakoeThis monument represents a liberated negro slave, whom had broke his chains.
